Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This catalogue for an exhibition of new Indian art highlights the country's freshest and most intriguing painting, sculpture, photography and multimedia installations, which often explore themes of identity, spirituality and urbanization.

Synopsis:

Chalo means Let's go in Hindi and the enthusiasm of that

expression is evident throughout the pages of this catalogue

for an exhibition at the Essl Museum in Austria. Encompassing

a broad range of media, including painting, sculpture,

photography, and installation, the book features more than

one hundred works by artists and collectives from all over

India. Themes of identity, urbanization, spirituality, and politics

reflect the country's recent transformation into a global power.

Accompanying the reproductions are essays that explore the

impact of the economic and cultural revolution on India and

focus on the modern art of specific geographic regions

throughout the country. Looking beyond the popular

Bollywood-influenced images of twenty-first-century India,

this important volume reveals the complex artistic practices

taking place throughout the country.
